Book Two in The Colorado Trust Series
Sweet twenty-seven and never been kissed. Well...no one's ever accused Marley Wade of being sweet. Raised in the world of construction by her rough-and-tumble father, Marley knows what it takes to succeed as a general contractor in a man's world. The last thing she needs is an employee who makes her feel soft and feminine.
New co-owner of Hunter Construction Justin Blake goes undercover on Marley's crew to discover the truth behind his grandfather's death. But he didn't count on an instant attraction to his boss--or for it to develop into deeper emotions. When a blackmailer threatens to expose the twenty-five-year-old secrets that link his family and Marley's, Justin realizes the truth could not only destroy a future with Marley, but his entire family as well.
In a world where nothing is as it seems, can Justin and Marley trust a love that appears as elusive as a mirage?
"Something about you got my attention from the moment we met."
That struck her as funny. "Would that have been my bra?"
Justin grinned. "There was that. But it was only half as intriguing as the woman wearing it."
She rolled her eyes to combat the unfamiliar thrill his words evoked.
He lifted a hand to rest on her shoulder. Gave a gentle squeeze. "Everything okay now?"
She nodded as his thumb skimmed the pulse at the base of her throat. When his touch returned to rest over the throbbing point, she felt a steady increase and knew he did too.
Curiosity killed the cat, Marley.
Cats have nine lives.
His head lowered toward hers. His gaze dropped to her mouth. The first brush of his warm lips against hers made her sway closer. She closed her eyes and lifted her chin for a better connection. When she braced one hand on his chest for support, she was shocked to feel his heart thundering beneath her palm.
His other arm slid over her hip and around her waist to pull her against him. The nerve endings in her entire body came alive, overwhelming her with unfamiliar sensations. She suddenly felt as if she'd had one too many beers on a sweltering summer night.
Then his mouth opened on hers. His hot, wet tongue slid along the seam of her lips before pushing through to her teeth. It startled her. It excited her. Okay, so her handful of kisses had been back in the fifth grade, when a half-second peck on the lips during spin the bottle was a major deal.
This was a major deal!
No, Marley, kissing an employee is a major deal.
